10 Things Teachers Really Want To Tell Parents

I wish I had this list when my sons were going through middle school. I’m grateful to all the truly caring and wonderful people who choose to work with kids each day.

Perhaps the most important thing that I heard from these educators is that they are not your adversaries, but your partners. They are a valuable resource and are willing to help kids and parents in any way they can. 

Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority,
because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account.
Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden,
for that would be of no benefit to you.
Hebrews 13:17
